I knew Janice because she volunteered for the Activities Department at the Manor. She would unusually follow Jacks lead and volunteered for programs that he also volunteer at, she was a great help. She related well to the residents, she was kind, compassionate and a lovely women . Her daughter Beth took after her in that respect, always thinking about the welfare of others. Janice raised a very caring daughter and that is tribute to her being a wonderful mother. I was honored to know her.
